The odds on Edinson Cavani joining Liverpool before the end of the transfer window have dropped amid rumours that the Reds are set to outbid their Premier League rivals.
The Uruguayan striker has played down recent reports that he is looking to leave Paris Saint Germain, with Arsenal, Chelsea and Man United all linked to the £51m rated striker.
Reports earlier today suggested that the Gunners were looking to outbid their fellow English side, with Cavani's agent admitting that Arsene Wenger had made an approach in the past and is a known fan of the Uruguayan.
However the bookies have lowered their odds on Brendan Rodgers choosing Cavani as the man to fill Luis Suarez's boots, despite a public insistence that he would not splash out on a marquee centre-forward.
The PSG striker is down as low as evens with a number of bookies to join the Reds before the window closes on September 2.
Cavani joined the French champions on a five-year contract last summer for a fee believed to be around €64.5 million, making it the sixth largest transfer in history and scored 25 goals in 43 appearances for the French side.
Richard Scudamore, the Premier League chief executive, has launched an extraordinary attack on Luis Suarez claiming the former Liverpool striker was "an accident waiting to happen" and claiming he was not sorry to see the Uruguayan leave for Barcelona in a £75 million deal.
